Server Virtualization

By chloek1 ·
I am a NDP student at a tech school. I have a group assignment to design a datacenter. I am considering server virtualization. I have researched the subject and have been attempting to educate myself. I am new to this field, so my questions may seem basic. Here goes -
1. What factors have to be considered when calculating the no. of physical servers required in a virtual server environment?
2. Once we calculate the no. of servers required for a conventional (non-virtual) server configuration, how do we determine the no. of servers required for a virtual equivalent?
3. I understand that CPU (type, no.), RAM size, hard drive size, software, network cards (no., type) are some of the factors, but are there other factors that need to be considered?

Thanks in advance for any help!
